The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd

Length: 78 pages56 minutes


This volume contains D. H. Lawrence’s 1911 play, "The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd". Mrs. Holroyd’s husband is a slovenly miser who drinks a lot, associates with prostitutes, and beats her. After a local gentleman makes his amorous feelings for her known, Mrs. Holroyd's prayers are answered - and her husband is killed in a mining accident. This fantastic novel is highly recommended for fans of Lawrence’s work, and it is not to be missed by collectors. David Herbert Richards Lawrence (1885 - 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, literary critic, and painter, famed as the author of "Lady Chatterley's Lover" and "Sons and Lovers". Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
